The filter is racist, pure and simple. Not everyone will be offended, but regardless, in today’s charged environment it definitely bears bringing up.
I work in IT (in corporate America). Our team makeup is nothing at all like Snapchat. Almost half Indian, and fully half Chinese. I am aware of being the lone white guy, but in our merit-based work environment, I don’t feel in the minority. I work with some very smart people, and am glad of it.
Any dude who says “get over it” is being arrogant and insensitive. Vote with your feet and leave Snapchat behind. Maybe they’ll get the message (but don’t hold your breath).
Don’t hate me; that’s just my two cents.
